"Growth Mindset" is a term that gets thrown around a lot in education! This class will cover the foundational elements of growth and fixed mindsets while exploring and discussing the application of mindsets within society, and more specifically schools. Our work in this course will focus on applying our learning to impact our teaching and interactions with students. In doing so, we will develop a toolbox of strategies for helping us and our students to develop a growth mindset.

Participants will need to purchase the book Mindset: The New Psychology of Success by Carol Dweck and read the first two chapters of the book before the first session.

      Student Data Privacy and Security in the Classroom
Target group: K-12 licensed teachers

There´s much discussion around the new student data privacy laws and how it affects teachers in their classroom. The conversation around whether or not an app is approved can be grounds for frustration. This class aims to get the record straight on various policies down to the roles and responsibilities of the teacher. This course will navigate through dismantling the myths, looking at both the macro and micro approach to the laws, SVVSD´s resources, and vetting apps.

Participants will have hands-on activities and lessons they can apply directly to their own classroom. The course finishes with a lesson or project creation around student data security and privacy.
